Mixed bag

  • 4 of 5
Have a lot of mixed feelings about this property after spending a week here. First off, the location is great....right on beach, water is steps from the back door. Unit was clean and ready when we arrived. However, it is located in BELLEAIR BEACH....not sure why listed on VRBO as INDIAN SHORES/INDIAN BEACH which is several miles south. House is older (70's vintage), mostly in good shape but could use some work. Kitchen fully eqipped....except for fact that none of the available plates/dishes/bowls are microwave safe. Had to buy paper plates and bowls from local grocery so could heat/warm/reheat in the microwave. Lots of beach chairs, beach towels and beach toys though which was nice. Had to contact the owner for a few ques, she was very easily accesible and responsive to our needs. Listing of sleeping arrangements somewhat misleading....would not consider a worn mattress simply slid underneath a bunk bed as a "trundle bed". That bedroom was quite small, the other two were quite adequate. Poor feedback from owner about location of necessities like grocery store and coffee shop....asked very specific ques, got very vague and pretty much useless reply. Confusing array of electronic components (TV, DVD, DVR/cable) with no instructions on how to use or how all components interfaced....simple sheet of basic operating instructions would have been nice. Lastly, arriving at night found the unit completely in the dark....porch light not turned on, all inside lights off, luckily smart phones have flashlight feature. An OK stay, doubt we'd return, too many other nicer beachfront units in area for same or lower price.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this most helpful review of our beach house. I am glad you enjoyed the direct beachfront location. The property is in Belleair Beach and Indian Shores/Indian Beach shows as a more broad area instead of direct location which is helpful to many travelers who would otherwise not be able to find this treasure of a tiny town. Just a few months ago I purchased all new Pottery Barn decorative melamine dishes and also have sets of stacking glass bowls for the microwave. I have updated our VRBO website with more specific information under the pictures of the bedrooms as well as found a feature on VRBO I loved that actually pin points on the map all of our favorite local places to eat as well as close by grocery stores, drug stores and and coffee shops, I even added a few local attractions. I hope that will be useful for future guests and am full of gratitude you pointed that out. A laminated sheet of directions for the electronics as well as a policy to always leave the front porch light on are also very, very helpful. Thank you taking the time to write such kind, constructive remarks it helps me make improvements like these to have a travelers perspective on our home away from home.

Great Home - beautiful views

  • 4 of 5
I would rate this home at 4.5 stars. The view is unbelievable and the gulf is out your back door. You can't find a better location! It would be a 5 star home had there not been a couple of minor inconveniences such as us having to buy hand soap and paper towels for the kitchen and a box of Kleenex for the downstairs bathroom the first day we were there. These are minor inconveniences but none the less, inconveniences. The bedrooms are all upstairs and the steps are fairly steep - just a bit of an FYI for those that have difficulty with stairs. The master bedroom is amazing with gulf views, king bed, large bathroom and deck. The second bedroom with a bathroom has a full bed so it was a bit of a squeeze for my taller son-in-law. A queen bed would make this a great room! The 3rd bedroom has no windows but worked for my teen daughter. This might not be suitable for all people, though. The kitchen is small but we made it work by using the charcoal grill outside. It would have been nice to have more dishes (plates, bowls) that we could use in the microwave for reheating food and sandwiches. They have melamine dishes that get extremely hot in the microwave and are not recommended in it. It is a townhome, not a single home, but that was not an issue as it was very quiet and we had no neighbors while we were there. The pool is a great addition and we had it to ourselves. There were 4 adults and 2 teens and it was a good fit. Any more people and I think we would have felt crowded. This is my personal opinion and may not bother some people. We would definitely rent this home again and the minor inconveniences are not a deterrent for the great location. And by the way, Shari is great to work with. She called to see if we made it there OK and contacted us to let us know that service people were going to be there. Thank you for letting us rent your home. It was hard to leave and I sure hope we get a chance to return some day.

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5
This house has the perfect location...right on the beach. It's in a residential area in Belleair so the beach, although not necessarily closed to the public, seems very private and was never crowded while we were there. We did drive north and visit Clearwater and we couldn't believe how crowded the beach was there. It was so nice to spend the day shopping and then go back to our quiet beach house. We felt very safe in the area. In fact, the sheriff would drive along the beach several times a day. Our 6 & 2 year old boys LOVED the beach and the pool. The pool is very nice. It has jets you can turn on in the shallow end and multi-colored lights you can turn on at night which is very neat. You do share the pool with 4 other units, but most of the time we were the only people using it.
The house is very nice. It is a town house, so yes it is only HALF of the house that you rent. Another review said that the listing was misleading in this regard, but I certainly didn't think so. I could tell from the pictures that it was only one side of the house. Nevertheless, the 9 people in my party (5 adults, 2 kids, 2 babies) had plenty of space and we were all comfortable.
The interior was clean and had actually been updated and differed from the pictures slightly, but only in good ways. It had new paint, dining set, and bedding. We had tons of beach towels, bath towels, hand towels, hand soap, and laundry detergent. We went out and bought toilet paper before we realized there was a whole package of it in the laundry room closet. The kitchen is complete with all appliances, dishes, utensils, and pots and pans. It was a tight fit for my mother, sister and I to cook a few meals together but we managed. Other things that were already in the house were matches and lighter fluid for the charcoal grill, trash bags, ziplock bags, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, sponges and dishrags, dish towels, salt and pepper and sugar. Oh, and Shari the owner had jars of chocolate candy out on the kitchen counter which the kids thoroughly enjoyed!
The only problem we experienced during our stay was the lack of lighting outside at night. We arrived after dark and had to use our phones to see the keypad to unlock the door. When I asked Shari about this she said the lights were not working and a handyman would be there within the week to fix them and no one ever came. It didn't spoil our stay though, and we highly recommend this house. We were sad to leave.

our once a year getaway

  • 5 of 5
We only get one week off from our business so we really want it to be memorable. When we arrived we were a little surprised to see it was only half the house that we rented, the picture is a little deceiving. The place was clean and the air conditioning was on so it was much appreciated since it was a very muggy day when we arrived. Amenities were fairly good (we did have to go get toilet paper a few days in) but otherwise well maintained. Ocean was great, we got to see a lot of dolphins and one day only about 25 feet from where we were swimming. The kids enjoyed the abundance of shells and the close vicinity of fun towns to do thing in. Would highly recommend this to families as a perfect place to vacation. Nice house, ocean view and secluded feeling only minutes from Clearwater.

Our family loved this place

  • 5 of 5
This is THE perfect place for a family to stay. The interior was very nice indeed! There was dish liquid, laundry detergent, salt, pepper, sugar already in the place when I arrived. That saved me some cash when I went grocery shopping at the Publix about 2-3 miles away. Lots of big towels for the beach and lots of shower towels were available. That saved on some space for packing when I saw them in one of the pictures before I left for vaca. We had 4 adults and 2 children (2 and 5). My little 5 year old learned how to swim in the beautiful pool that is very well kept. The east end of the pool has 2 switches - one for a cool blue light and one for the west end pools generation of hard bubbles. I played golf (There are 2 courses within 10 miles or so) and would go into the pool and it is like a jacuzzi when the bubbles are on to massage my shoulder. the Landscaping is very nice and I loved the Hammock - took it out in the morning and take back in at night so it was safe. Hooking it up is easy beacuse there are already links built into the tree for it. The area itself is very rich....1/4 mile down the street Ryan S the baseball player is building a 28 million dollar home. the beach is awesome. We saw Dolphins having fun in the ocean 100 yards out. the lookout from the upper deck is breath taking and the main lever patio is just as nice. The south side of the building, the wood deck is getting faded and gives a worn look but dont be dismayed - that is where the charcol grill, beach toys and water hose are located. We went to Busch Gardens and Adventure island 32 miles away one day and went to clearwater beach 3 miles north of the place on another day. If you havent been to clearwater public beach in a few years, you will be amazed. Its very clean with lots of commerciality. Lots of shops,hotels, restaurants, snack places and facilities. The beach is great, clean and classy. Already in place at the beach is large umbrellas with chairs or a cabana with chairs. You can rent them....You just take a spot and a person with come up to you for your money for rental. Large Umbrella and 2 chairs were 28 bucks for the day. Food is expensive at tourist places so It will be cheaper to buy a cooler or maybe the owner has one. I didnt notice. My aunt lives in the next city so we used her cooler at the beach and at Adv Island and save hundreds on food. Considering the price, location and savings that you would have blown at a hotel I am giving this place a huge thumbs up!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a perfect family vacation, something that is fairly rare with 2 young children. We barely left the area because everything we needed was within reach The property was spotless and offered us some much-overdue relaxation and fun.

From the beach, to the pool, to the beachouse and back again. That was our typical day. We were able to put our 6 month old to sleep for a nap, and bring the monitor out to the beach while we played and relaxed with our 3 year old.

The owner was readily available and helped us out with many questions.

It was nice being away from a crowded beach, and it never felt 'dull'. My son still talks about the helicopters, pirate ships, stingrays, crabs, fish, bouncy waves... it was nothing short of paradise.

We hope to return in the coming year, we couldn't have been happier.

Thanks!
